Our Belief Statement
Hope Community belongs to an international network and fellowship of churches known as the Church of the Nazarene. The Church of the Nazarene provides us with moral, spiritual and financial accountability.
It was founded, in 1908, to spread the message of Scriptural holiness (Christ-like living) across the lands. The Church of the Nazarene is a Great Commission church. We believe God offers everyone forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life and the promise of heaven through a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message to people everywhere.
The Church of the Nazarene is also a holiness church. We believe that Christians can experience a deeper level of life in which there is victory over sin, power to witness and serve, and a richer fellowship with God, all through the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
The Church of the Nazarene describes itself as a Christian, Protestant, and Evangelical church.
